      @xxiamemoxx24, thats nice :d

  • Naddie

    Hi All,
    I have a question. For those who pre-order from Nokia Malaysia’s web site, and from the event that they had at Sunway Pyramid, The Curve and Low Yat Plaza on 13th and 14th December, will they be receiving the phone before the event on 9th January, or will they have a reserved set to pick up?

    I’m anticipating the Nokia 5800 and I’ve pre-ordered it on the web site and I went to The Curve to pre-order. They gave me ice-cream and free drinks hehe. Furthermore, those who do pre-order will get a free Nokia headphone. You can pre-order here,

    Am in the midst of deciding between red or blue. Smashpop, please do update us once the price is finalized.

    Thanks and regards,

    • smashpop

      @Naddie, i want blue!

  • neo_sharky

    hopefully the price will not burden us as a student. hehe

    • smashpop

      @neo_sharky, dont worry.. i dont think it will be too high

  • Ampalus N85

    damn, just bought n85 last week, never tot dat the 5800 will be here as soon as 9th of january.
